Well, this one is short, sweet, and rather mysterious:

Quote
Subject: hi
I am Ms Judith, I have a God calling proposal for you email: XXXXXXXXX@gmail.com for my details.

Are you there, God? It's me, Twik....

It doesn't say God, it says a God. So I wonder which one it is. Maybe Thor? Or Zeus? But I am betting it is Loki or Coyote.

No, no! It's a God-calling proposal. Ms. Judith wants to hire you to telephone all the deities out there. Either that, or she's invented a new and improved God-call and needs help marketing it. Not sure how well it will sell, however, as the one in current use is free. You know, "prayer."

How would one even call a God, any God? What are their phone numbers? And what country code would they belong to, for that matter?

With my luck, any call would go straight to Voicemail.....

If it goes to VM, does a God call you back, or do They have a PA to do that stuff?

Poirot thought you could, but forebore to say so.

Yes, but is he your own personal Jesus?

Somebody at work just told me that this has worked for one of his neighbours:

Answer the phone in a language other than English.  For us here in Canada, 'Ola' would work, 'Bonjour', maybe not.  I'm thinking about answering in Japanese.  Phonetically here because I have no idea how to spell it:  Koneitchiwa.  Better warn my Dad before I do it, though, or he'll be really confused!  (I don't have call display.)
After cleaning out my Dad's house, I have this advice:  If you haven't used it in a year, throw it out!!!!.

Extra tip: The way to answer the phone in Spanish is "Bueno!"

FYI, they answer the phone with "Moshi-moshi" in Japan!

This is a funny idea. If you wanted to use it, I think that learning a few words in Urdu would be nice.  >:D

Just make something up- that way there's no chance of them understanding it!

Thanks!  Not that it really matters, since the point is just to answer in something other than English.  Maybe I could try Klingon...

I like "moshi-moshi!"  What does it mean, literally?
